WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has announced his plans to run for Mayor of Houston, Texas in 2020.
The announcement was made during his “Heated Conversations” radio show on Saturday night, which airs on Sports Radio 610, according to CBS Houston.
“You heard it, 2020 I’m preparing,” Booker said. “I’m preparing myself to run for mayor of the city.”
Booker, who is currently RAW and SmackDown Pre-show co-host on the WWE Network, noted that he talked to Rhyno for advice after Rhyno recently ran for a seat in the Michigan House of Representatives. Rhyno was on Saturday’s show and said he believes Booker would make a great Mayor. He said:
“You are over qualified for the job. Wrestling not only prepares you for life but it prepares you for positions like that because you feel the emotion from the people you know what they want, you’ve built yourself from where you were to where you’re at now.”
